The REALITY is that the risks to our drinking water from gas drilling go well beyond fracking
Spills, work site accidents, truck accidents and illegal activity can and do happen in every industry
With gas drilling, though, we're dealing with millions of gallons of dangerous and deadly chemicals, thousands of gas wells and millions of truck trips
Despite the best effort of industry, these events did occur
Disasters big and small will continue to occur and continue to put your drinking water at risk
Fracking has a very low risk of contamination. The risk is higher at the surface with handling of frac constituents.
